  • 1. Impacts of climate-smart integratedfarming systems on women’snutrition and health in BangladeshAfrina Choudhury and Melody Braun
  • 2. OVERVIEW BANGLADESH AND CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITIONAL CHALLENGES PRESENTED BY CLIMATE CHANGE CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT ON NUTRITION OF WOMEN WORLDFISH/PARTNER PROGRAMS OF WORK THAT ADDRESS THESE ISSUES  5 FISH SYSTEM APPROACHES  4 HORTICULTURE SYSTEM APPROCHES  PROMOTION OF DIET CHANGES CONCLUSIONS
  • 3. CLIMATE CHANGE AND BANGLADESHBANGLADESH IS ONE OF THE MOST CLIMATE CHANGECHALLENGED COUNTRIES DUE TO IT PROXIMITY TO THE SEA,THE LOW LEVEL OF FARMLAND AND THE LARGE POPULATION OFPEOPLE LIVING IN SUCH AREAS INCREASING SALINITY IN THE SOUTH INCREASED SEVERITY OF CYCLONIC STORMS INCREASINGLY ERRATIC RAINFALL PATTERNS AND SEASONS INCREASED SEVERITY AND FREQUENCY OF FLOODS
  • 4. NUTRITION AND CLIMATE CHANGEFOR THE POOR, THIS IS A DAILY STRUGGLE THAT IS COMPOUNDEDBY: INCREASING SALINITY AFFECTING CROP PRODUCTION, PARTICULARLY RICE, CROPS AND AQUACULTURE IN THE SOUTH LOSS OF CROPS TO SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS THREATENING SUSTAINABILITY OF FISHERIES RESOURCESACCESS TO FOOD, EITHER BY MEANS OF PRODUCTION ORPURCHASE, DETERMINES NUTRITION SECURITY
  • 5. CLIMATE CHANGE AND WOMENWOMEN ARE THE CAREGIVERS AND PRIMARY SOURCE OF FAMILYNUTRITION ON A DAILY BASISTHEY ARE SYSTEMATICALLY CONSTRAINED IN THEIR PRIMARY FOODPROVISION ROLES BY: BEING THE LAST TO EAT IN THE FAMILY HAVING LOW FINANCIAL ACCESS AND CONTROL AT HOUSEHOLD LEVEL TO MAKE FOOD DECISIONS CONSTRAINED ABILITY TO TRAVEL OUTSIDE THE HOMESTEAD INEQUITABLE ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY
  • 6. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <FISH COMPONENTS> GHER CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION FLOOD RESILIENT INTEGRATES RICE,FISH AND VEGETABLESYSTEM DROUGHT RESILIENT PROVIDES YEAR-LONG FOOD SOURCE SALINE TOLERANT FISH/SHRIMP HIGH INCOME
  • 7. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <FISH COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITIONSMALL FOCUS ON NATURAL FISH SPECIES SMALL FISH HAVE GREATER NUTRITION FISH LOW INVESTMENT COSTS (RISK) POOR PEOPLE EAT SMALL FISH
  • 8. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <FISH COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION FISH VARIATIONS OF WATER LEVEL INCREASE WILD FISH POPULATIONS RICE CONNECTIVITY OF FISH TO FIELDS FOCUS ON FISH AND RICESYSTEMS LOW INVESTMENT COSTS (RISK) ENHANCE SMALL FISH SPECIES
  • 9. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <FISH COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION ENHANCE NATURAL FISH POPULATIONS LOCALLY AVAILABLE AND PREFEREDFISHERIES LOW COSTS (OR FREE) ENHANCED DIVERSITY OF SPECIES HIGH NUTRIENT VALUE
  • 10. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <FISH COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION CAGES FLOAT ! WOMEN MANAGED AND CONTROLLEDCAGES ADAPT TO CHANGING WATER CLOSE TO HOME FOR EASY ACCESS RESOURCE OPPORTUNITIES CAN BE LOW COST SALINE TOLERANT
  • 11. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <HORTICULTURE COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION OPTIMIZATION OF SPACE LOCALLY AVAILABLE AND PREFEREDGHERS SALINITY LOW COSTS (OR FREE) FLOODS HIGH NUTRIENT VALUE DROUGHTS
  • 12. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <HORTICULTURE COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION FLOODS LOCALLY AVAILABLE AND PREFEREDSARJON DROUGHTS LOW COSTS (OR FREE) SALINITY ? HIGH NUTRIENT VALUE INCOME
  • 13. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <HORTICULTURE COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION VERTICAL FLOODS SEASONALITYAGRICULTURE DROUGHTS DIVERSITY SALINITY HIGH NUTRIENT VALUE (CCAFS) WOMEN CONTROLLED WATER EFFICIENCY EASE OF ACCESS (HOMESTEAD)
  • 14. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <HORTICULTURE COMPONENTS> DIVERSIFIED CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION CROPPING IN SEASONAL/WATER VARIATION DIVERSIFIED CROPPING SYSTEMS DIVERSIFICATION (RISKS) WOMEN CONTROLLED HOMESTEAD LOW INVESTMENT (RISKS) EASE OF ACCESS (HOMESTEAD)AND POND DYKE UTILIZATION OF SPACE
  • 15. WORLDFISH COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES <DIET CHANGE COMPONENTS> CLIMATE CHANGE NUTRITION DIETARY DIVERSIFICATION AND SEASONALITY HIGH BETA CAROTEN CROPSCHANGES FOR BETTER RESILIENCE AND HEALTH DIVERSIFIED CROPPING SYSTEMS WOMEN CONTROLLED EASE OF ACCESS (HOMESTEAD)
